A Stage 1 Environmental Assessment and Flood Risk Assessment has been carried out by Glanville Group.

The Flood Risk Assessment concludes the elements of Chilmark Estates which are at risk of fluvial flooding are constrained closely by the site?s topography and that future development of the site should not be constrained.

An Asbestos Management Survey Report has been undertaken by Casa Environmental.

The benefit of the Environmental, Flood Risk and Asbestos Surveys are assignable to the purchaser and the Reports are included in the Data Room.
